DETECTUS EMC-SCANNERS

RSE series EMC and Heat Scanners with 3D scanning

Scan both EMI and Heat hot spots

EMC and Heat scanning combined

The RSE series comes in three different sizes to fit most DUTs and combine a high scan resolution of 1mm, and the best-in-class scanning SW to deliver powerful visualization of the EMC test. An IR probe is also included to additionally scan temperature of the surface of the DUT. There is no need to invest in a separate Heat scanner.

How do you perform EMC-scanning?

A complete scanner system consists of the EMC-Scanner Hardware package, the Detectus Scanning SW (DSS), a Spectrum Analyzer and a PC to run the scanner SW. Pendulum Instruments can supply everything if required, but normally the user already possesses a PC and a Spectrum Analyzer.

The test object is put on the coordinate board and a small near-field probe is moved in a controlled and repetitive path above the test object, registering the field strength. The probe output signal in every position is measured by the Spectrum Analyzer, and transferred to the scanner SW. The smart SW combines the spatial information (X,Y,Z) with the spectrum in that position, and presents detailed results.

Advantages of the Detectus RSE scanner

In R&D

Using the EMC-Scanner during the early stages of design enables you to detect potential emission problems before they become integrated into the product and expensive to correct.

If a product has failed a test at a test house, normally you only learn which frequency failed, not the location of the noise source. The EMC-Scanner can help you find the source, and repeated measurements while redesigning your product helps you lower the emission levels.

You can compare different design solutions and make comparative measurements of electromagnetic emissions.

In Q&A

The EMC-Scanner can help you maintain a high quality in the production line. You can make measurements on samples from the production line and easily compare them with a reference. That way you can make sure that, for example, a change of supplier of a component doesn’t affect the emission spectra in a negative way.

Leading Performance from the Detectus designers

With 1 mm step size of the scanner, you can pinpoint emission sources in packed designs. You can in parallel pin-point temperature hot spots

You can scan emissions up to 10 GHz, with the standard Pendulum Probe kits. If the user has near-field probes going up to higher frequencies, e.g. 70 GHz, then these can easily be attached and used for EMC-scanning. The SW has no limits, but you must of course use a Spectrum Analyzer that support the frequency range.

Within the Detectus RSE series you can choose from various sizes, to fit most test objects. The scan table comes in three basic sizes (WxDxH):

300x200x100 mm (3D)

600x400x200 mm (3D)

600x400x400 mm (3D)

World class SW lets you SEE electromagnetic fields

The easy-to-use and feature-rich DSS SW let you measure and visualize the intensity and the location of a radiation source at a component level – or even inside a component. The results of such a measurement can be shown as two- or three-dimensional colored maps. The measurements can easily be repeated creating objective, comparative measurement results.

Measurements can be saved and later compared with board-level changes, thanks to the exact repetitive scanning. The SW even allows to subtract two scanning results to emphasize the true difference of any board layout – or component – change.
